Minnesota Golden Gophers forward Nick Bjugstad scored this awesome goal against Boston College on Sunday Night.  He’s got a great set of hands, and did a great job using his body to shield the puck.  Bjugstad was drafted 19th overall by the Florida Panthers, and based on his development, he looks like he could have a bright future in the NHL.  This year he has 15 points through 18 games and that total will only continue to climb.Video via: @cjzero
